40 Hour SANE Training Description

The training is geared toward medical professionals: ARNPs, RNs, and physicians and is constructed by adhering to the National Training Standards for Sexual Assault Medical Forensic Examiners for adults and adolescents.  The training is also valuable to prosecutors, law enforcement officers, victim advocates and crime lab analysts.  Courses run M-F 8:00-5:00 and include both lecture and hands-on skills training.

Taught by an experienced, highly skilled and well-credentialed trainer, this training provides an interesting and interactive format for learning critical information about this important field.  Training materials are regularly updated to reflect current best practices and participants are equipped with a comprehensive training manual, complete with color photos for injury documentation, evidence based research articles and references.  Group exercises are designed to incorporate lecture materials with hands-on experience.  Small class size allows for individual attention from the instructor.  Additionally, FCASV offers follow up courses, often free of charge, for past participants.

Throughout the week we invite individuals from the community to give guest presentations on working with law enforcement, providing advocacy and therapeutic services, working with prosecutors and crime lab analysis.  Nursing participants receive 40 CEUs. Florida Council Against Sexual Violence is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Florida Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the Florida Board of Nursing Provider ID Number 50-3103.  The course does meet the requirement of the International Association of Forensic Nurses, the certifying body of SANE, that students undergo a 40 hour course before becoming eligible to sit for the national exam.  Click here for more information on competency v. certification for examiners.
